Ind. Decisions - "Jill Behrman killer to have 2013 hearing"

Keith Rhoades has the story in the Bloomington Herald-Times ($$).

John R. Meyers II was convicted of the murder of Jill Behrman in 2006:

Myers appealed his conviction, but it has been upheld by the Indiana Supreme Court. He filed for conviction relief in February of 2009.

The case is in Morgan County Superior Court under Judge G. Thomas Gray. In August 2010, the judge granted requests from Myer’s new lawyers — Anne Murray Burgess and Joanna Green, who were appointed to represent Myers — to make available all evidence collected in the case. * * *

An attorney conference is scheduled for 4 p.m. Nov. 1. The post conviction relief hearing is scheduled for April 23-26, 2013.

Myers is being held at the state prison in Michigan City.

Here is a long list of earlier ILB entries on the Myers case.

Recall that Myers' attorney, Patrick V. Baker of Indianapolis, was suspended from the practice of law in late 2011, for "6 months" plus the ominous "without automatic reinstatement."
